Balalaika Dress Fall 2009 - SOLD OUT!

Aren't the colors yummy?

fyi: When I was working on the fall Balalaika group, I was imagining what kind of music might have been playing around the Royal Buffalo Hunt's campfire. (if you are new to our blog and have no idea what I am talking about jump back to see fall 2009's inspiration) I imagined a balalaika.  Balalaikas are triangular shaped stringed instruments with Russian originbalalaika and are often embellished with beautiful folk art inlay or hand painting. I imagined that the Russian Grand Duke might have played his native instrument to the delight of his hosts. In my dream world, I even had the duke's balalaika all Faberged-up with gemstones and rich colored enamels.

Here is a short clip of the balalaika (actually two) being played.  Enjoy Lara's Theme from Dr. Zhivago or better yet, watch the movie and check out Yuri's balalaika.

Ah, Dr. Zhivago... one of my all-time favorites.

Jessica, you are the winner… when the stylist put them on the model we all said that everybody was going to want the stockings. Sure enough, you are officially the first to inquire.
Audrey & I picked these up a couple of years back at Macys not really with a plan in mind, but they were just so great. Unfortunately, there is no tag or marks but I will do some research and get back with you. Thanks for asking and how is your blog going?

Please tell me how you wear it – over jeans or as a dress? And I’m glad you like the new colors. I do too.

Hey friends… I’m sure you never thought that I could answer the tattoo hose question… well, tonight while I was cleaning Madison’s horrible room, I found this box from last Christmas that was full of Madison’s last year Christmas presents. Full of girly things including these tights that I bought for my girl’s last Christmas. They are called "Stocking Diva Tight, the American Princess by Celeste Stein made in the USA. Web address is www.celestestein.com. While I was a bit (a lot!) mad when I discovered all this stuff God has a way of answering even the strangest requests! Hope this helps.
Merry Christmas to you all!

As the saying goes, “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure”, and no one brought more truth to that phrase than Santo Domingo Pueblo jewelry artisans. These masterpieces were made from whatever they could find.
